We Don't Need No Steenkin' Free Speech

Cindy Sheehan who was invited by Rep. Lynn Woolsey to attend the state of the union speech, was arrested and taken away in handcuffs.

What crime did she commit you might wonder?

She wore a t-shirt with an anti-war slogan on it.

We'll all sleep better tonight. (snark)

BREITBART.COM - Activist Cindy Sheehan Arrested at Capitol: "Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq who reinvigorated the anti-war movement, was arrested and removed from the House gallery Tuesday night just before President Bush's State of the Union address, a police spokeswoman said.

Sheehan, who had been invited to attend the speech by Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., was charged with demonstrating in the Capitol building, a misdemeanor, said Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider. Sheehan was taken in handcuffs to police headquarters a few blocks away and her case was processed as Bush spoke.

Schneider said Sheehan had worn a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan to the speech and covered it up until she took her seat. Police warned her that such displays were not allowed, but she did not respond, the spokeswoman said.

Police handcuffed Sheehan and removed her from the gallery before Bush arrived. Sheehan was to be released on her own recognizance, Schneider said.
